Welcome from our Headteacher

Chellaston Academy is a special place to learn and develop. We aim to equip our students with the values, attitudes, skills and knowledge that bring success in future employment, study and life. We believe in being fully inclusive and we can support and cater for a wide range of needs. Whilst we take academic achievement seriously, we also consider educating the whole person to be vitally important. We encourage initiative and provide an environment in which creativity can flourish and individual talent is recognised and nurtured. Our core values of integritycare and excellence run through all of our work and we embrace these together. Students leave us as mature, confident and successful global citizens who can thrive in an ever-changing world.

What does Teaching and Learning look like at Chellaston Academy?

Chellaston Charter

Mindset Development

At Chellaston Academy we believe in helping and supporting all students of all ability develop a Mindset which is rooted in our three core values; Integrity, Care and Integrity.

Education is not just about academic performance therefore we want to create a support system to improve; mental health and well-being, determination and individuals who are well-rounded, well-mannered and caring members of the community. The key focus of this system is to create a shift from just focusing on behaviour for learning in the classroom to Mindset development for the whole being of our students.

Students will be rewarded mindset points based on our three core values during lessons and within non-structured time. Any member of staff can award mindset points. If your son or daughter helps out at home or around the local community send the school an email so we can award them an integrity mindset point.

To the right you can see the relevant criteria for the different values that staff use to distribute the mindset points. Thank you for your continued support.
